French word for echolalia, the immediate, stereotyped and involuntary repetition of words or phrases just spoken by others. Commonly known as "parroting", functional echolalia is using a quoted phrase in a way that has shared meaning, for example, a child who sings the Barney jingle to ask for a Barney videotape, or says "Get your shoes and socks" to ask to go outside (in very young children, imitating or echoing another's speech is normal, and helps in the development of...

This album contains 12 massive DUB tracks, all created in 2005. There's a big variety in the choice of riddims on this one. The album starts off with some heavy duty One Drop tracks, followed by a couple of catchy Rub A Dub tunes, and then goes over into Messian Dread's own particular heavy militant Hardcore Steppers DUB. The title of the album is taken from an article in which Messian Dread was being labeled as a "Skunk In The Room". The music was created and mixed in the same time...

Night Night is the lap-pop alias for Dana Gumbiner, singer and songwriter with the California-based Deathray. Night Night's music is a somewhat blurry amalgamation of Speak N Spell affirmations over warbled tone poems, stuttered rhythms and heartfelt clicks and beeps. With Night Night, Dana is trying to create an atmosphere of pleasant fuzziness, something corresponding to a short flight on an airplane, or maybe your first glass of wine. He is inspired by the music and work of Brian Eno,...

Who doesn't like the summer? "Levemente" by Sumergido reminds us of the warm season. The four relaxed electro tracks of the EP range between House and Dub, always light and a little playful. You just notice that the summer of Buenos Aires never ends. Apart from Sumergido's tracks you'll find remixes by Glander and Scaff.

.Tape. is 26 year old Daniel Romero from Asturias, Spain. He wears glasses, likes playing with toy instruments such as the casio pt88, toy accordion, and a toy spanish guitar. He uses a very simple sequencer and records his toy instruments with a simple pc microphone. Bringing together his love for lo-fi indie pop with his love for melodic electro-pop, .tape. creates a unique story-book landscape where more than likely, you'll find the princess saves the dragon from the evil prince.

This goes to all the alternative-fans out there. Colida are really masters of their genre.

In 2005 they recorded "eyes shut and ears wide open" at 'Die Tonmeisterei' in Oldenburg, a studio wellknown for indie- and hardcore-sounds. Beyond others Assault-records and Weserlabel let their bands record their...

Milhaven are a postrock-band from Bochum we discovered two years ago. Sven Swift recorded and produced their first album and this brand new EP. The story so far... After the release of Bars Closing Down in the early days of 12rec, Milhaven soon became one of our most downloaded artists. In the Winter of 2006, nearly one year ago, we met in their old, dirt-laden rehearsal room and started to record new songs. Hooked by the success of the debut LP, Sven thrashed the old tape-recorder and spend...

Gorowski has made us wait ('I needed to make a few tweaks'), but finally we get to hear his new promo album, 'I Don't Believe You'. This soundtrack provides a fusion of electronic messing about with fresh slices from the discotech. Leftfield emotion, a touch of melancholy, and damn right summer-inducing tuneage make for a sprawling, yet fulfilling excursion into non-conformism. While the 'Ancient Rollers' and 'Space Bandidos ('06 version)' take us to the edge of the pier, 'Barneveld' (a tribute...
